From Lacey:

Noah and I met at the Adams County Fair in July of 2015. We were introduced by a mutual friend and we immediately felt like we had known each other forever. We immediately became best friends, that turned into a relationship.

At this time we had both decided on our #1 college, and they happened to be 7 hours away from each other. Although the distance was hard, we both knew we had to find ourselves and take the best path to pursue our dream careers, supporting each other through it all. It was fun to visit each other.

Noah graduated Mizzou in 2019 and I graduated from Marquette University in 2020. In May of 2020, we moved to STL so I could attend Optometry School at UMSL. In August before school began, Noah proposed to me on a beach in Destin, FL at sunset. I am hard to surprise, and he was successful in hiding this from me as he often reminds me that he finally “got me”.

We had a 2 year engagement to prepare for the 460 guests who attended our wedding. We got married on October 22, 2022. If you recall the day, the weather was 80 and sunny and to us a perfect day to get married. It was the best time to reunite with some our closest friends we do not get to see as much, but to have them standing up there with us means the world to us. We were surrounded by loving family and friends and are so thankful we could share such a special day with so many people.

At the reception, every one could not stay off the dance floor. It was definitely a party and we are so happy everyone had fun. We could have stayed all night long. To break up the night and as an ode to where we first met, we had late night fair food snacks like cheese curds, corn dogs, chicken strips and fries which was an absolute hit. Highly recommend. We could not have asked for a more perfect day and a more perfect life ahead as husband and wife.
